Hurricane Sandy has been a disaster of mammoth proportions. More than 8 million people have been affected. The damage in New York alone is estimated to be over 30 billion dollars. Several APPNA members and their families in New York and New Jersey have been personally affected and their life is just returning to near normalcy.
APPNA is helping with relief efforts in Brighton beach, New York and Jersey Shores where over 1000 Pakistani Americans have also been affected. These people need our urgent help as they are desperately in need of heaters and blankets. Following APPNA efforts are under way:
- APPNA is distributing 500 heaters free of charge to Hurricane victims in Brighton beach, New York
- Food trays with APPNA LABELS were sent to Jersey shores to serve 400 people.
- Jackets, socks, gloves and canned food were delivered through Toms River Mosque in New Jersey.
These are the initial efforts. APPNA plans to do much more for all Hurricane affected Americans in coming weeks. Please contribute generously for the storm victims. You can sponsor any of the following:
- Meals for $3 each
- Blankets for $20 each
- Heaters for $20 each
- Houses Clean up and Repair for $800 each
